The Kids Are All Right and other Films of Kunal Sharma
Kunal Sharma plays Jai, the somewhat shy boyfriend of Mia "Joni" Wasikowska in The Kids Are All Right. Static Multimedia describes Sharma as a tween heartthrob who is making a successful jump from Disney Channel fare to adult movies.
He's got a winning personality, as shown in this YouTube video of Sharma teaching the interviewer the moonwalk, and has previously appeared in episodes of Hannah Montana, Veronica Mars, Crossing Jordan, and Legally Blondes, a spin-off of the successful Reese Witherspoon comedies centered on the adventures of her twin British cousins.
But Sharma may be taking a more serious turn. For example, he'll appear with Danny Glover in the upcoming Mooz-lum, a drama that looks at perceptions of U.S. Muslims following 9/11, and the somewhat mysterious Sacred Journey, which looks at how a diverse group of high-school seniors get through a three-day trip required for their graduation. On a less serious note, he's also in the upcoming high-school comedy The Prankster.
